Practice areas

Nick Rosenbauer was born and raised in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. After attending Covington Latin School, he received his undergraduate degrees from Thomas More College while playing 4 years of soccer for the Saints. He then received his J.D. from the University of Dayton School of Law, and his license to practice law in the State of Ohio. During law school, Nick focused his studies on advanced development of Estate and Tax Planning.

​Nick began his career in private practice at a small firm in Dayton, Ohio that concentrated on Social Security Disability. This experience gave him a deeper understanding of planning issues for families who have loved ones with disabilities or special needs. Nick then joined a well-known estate planning firm in Blue Ash, Ohio that allowed him to perfect his craft and focus on his passion of helping families, before ultimately opening his own firm, The Rosenbauer Law Office.

​Now, having been in practice for over a decade, Nick enjoys giving educational presentations on estate planning topics. He has hosted his own events and has also presented as a guest speaker for financial professionals, business owners, and real estate investors in the area. He devotes himself to over 40 hours of Continuing Legal Education per year. Nick is also a member of the Ohio State Bar Association and the Cincinnati Bar Association, where he serves on the Estate Planning and Probate Committee.

​Nick currently lives with his wife and their two little boys in Monroe, Ohio. When not at the office, he enjoys running, reading, coaching soccer (if you can call it "coaching" at that age), and the occasional round of golf. Nick, his wife, and the boys are University of Dayton basketball season-ticket holders. Being a Kentucky native, Nick is always on the hunt for a new bourbon to sample (even though he gets in trouble for buying a new bottle before finishing the last bottle he found). Nick belongs to St. Maximilian Kolbe Church, where you can usually find the Rosenbauer family sitting in the very back (just in case baby gets too loud)!

Outstanding Skills and Personality
I attended a seminar Nick gave in Fairfield. I was very impressed with his knowledge as well as his calm personality. I needed to have my will and trusts updated. He is very good at explaining things. He answered all of my questions without hesitation. I can highly recommend him.

Estate planning and Trust
Nick was amazing to work with and made us feel comfortable dealing with the uncomfortable subject of dealing with wills and trusts. He was thorough and thoughtful through the process. We are so glad to get this taken care of and glad we chose Nick to handle and walk us through the process. My husband and I highly recommend Rosenbauer Law Office.

A lawyer you can trust with your Trust
We researched local attorneys and sought recommendations from our bank and friends. We ended up interviewing two that specialized in Trusts. Nick took the time to explain the complete process, that it would require work on our part to insure our assets were titled correctly. Specifics we had concerning grandchildren were carefully and explicitly covered in the Trust He was very upfront on what the costs and deliverables would be. We wanted to make things as clear and easy for our successor trustees (children) to handle and an attorney that would be there to help them identify what was required. Nick's process was very thorough and insured that we understood all aspects of the Trust and related documents including a very organized Trust book with an introduction that outlined each section in plan English. We recently reviewed the Trust with our children and the book made it very clear to explin how the Trust was structured and their responsibilities. Nick, clearly exceeded our expectations.

Updating wills
We met Nick at one of his free seminars. We liked his professionalism. We decided to meet with him to further discuss our situation. We are glad we did. Nick thoroughly assessed our needs and helped us with updating our wills. He also was very helpful and did not pressure us in any way. He has provided us piece of mind. I will recommend Nick to my family and friends. He is an excellent lawyer for living trusts, wills and several other topics.

Don't go anywhere else!
My wife and I worked with Nick to get our trust setup. The whole process was really well organized and smooth. Nick is real courteous and responsive as well. I also liked the fact that he deals with estate planning only and so I felt we had the right person for the right job. Look nowhere else for your estate planning needs.

ESTATE PLANNING &
Nick completed our Estate Planning and set up a Living Trust for our grandson, due to the recent death of his mother. He brought a lot of things to our attention that we would have never thought of. He did a thorough job and was very professional and efficient!

Top Shelf
Nick has provided advice and guidance during our estate and trust planning situation. I found him to be experienced, responsive, knowledgeable and honest. While working with Nick, I felt as though our situation was in adept and trustworthy hands, and he did not steer us wrong. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone seeking life planning representation that is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at the forefront. Should the situation arise, I would not hesitate to seek representation from Nick Rosenbauer again.

Made Us Understand What We Needed And Why
My wife and I called Rosenbauer Law when she had a medical emergency. We had procrastinated getting an estate plan done for YEARS and we had no idea where to sart. I did a Google search since I didn't know any attorneys. I was nervous at first, but Nick and his staff were absolutely wonderful to deal with. They were polite, professional, and extremely flexible in meeting with us. Nick REALLY knows his stuff. But what I liked the most is how he explained the legal complexities in plain English so my wife and I could understand what we were doing and why. I've dealt with people in the past who just tell you what you need and get impatient whenever you ask a simple question. Nick gave us the time we needed and I felt like we were his only clients. He also moved around his schedule to make sure we could get our documents in place before my wife's major surgery. Nick went above and beyond and we feel SO MUCH BETTER now that our family is protected.

Competence and Comfort
We received a postcard in the mail about a free seminar. My Mom had done a trust so we decided to go to the seminar. We liked what we heard and made an appointment. We are very satisfied with how we were treated and we feel comfortable with all the staff we encountered. The information is presented in a very easy way that even we can understand, as non lawyers. And we like the follow up services that will be offered in the future. It makes us feel more comfortable with how we are leaving things for our children.

Exceptional Client Service
Nicks seminar was very informative and useful. Megan & Nick were both very helpful and professional. I was impressed by Nick’s credential and experience. Everyone I met at Zimmer Law Firm was very polite and professional.

Highly recommended!
The process of creating all of my legal documents couldn't have gone any easier. Initially met Nick at a Retirement Seminar,and my first impression was that he was someone I could relate to. Our planning meeting went smoothly as did the signing session w/ Megan. I felt that my needs were met with the utmost professionalism and I felt very at ease… unlike the stereotypical impression of dealing with stodgy lawyer. I valued their advice and concern for my situation,and am glad I decided not to take the easy way out by going online for my legal needs.

Highly recommended!
Nick took the time to explain my options for estate planning. He offered me advice and suggestions, but did not push or 'sell' me anything I didn't need. He was honest and 'matter of fact', which I like. He was patient with me and allowed me to understand everything and come to my own educated decisions. I am now comfortable with my estate plan.
